“Perfect location and space for a family visit to London.”

The pictures available on the website are totally accurate. The flat is extremely well equipped. We really appreciated the breakfast supplies and extras that were generously provided. It is easy walking to a number of places including the tube and several restaurants. Being a flat that is below street level, it is still very bright and has lots of room. After travelling continuously for several days, it was wonderful for the 4 adults and one child to unpack and spread out. We only ate breakfast in as we were gone all day, but is was well worth having the space. Fred always responded quickly to any emails when we were planning. Don't be deterred by the exterior run down look of the building as those that have been repainted are very posh looking and the interior of this one is very up to date. The only negative are the steep steps down to the flat mean you have to be capable of carrying your bags down and up.

“WOW...I was blown away.”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The moment you arrive in front of the building, you know you are staying someplace special. Fred met us out front of the flat and when we got inside, I could not believe how spacious and awesome this apartment was. The lounge was comfortable and just as the picture displayed. The kitchen was gorgeous and had everything we needed and more. Fred had taken the time to stock the fridge with milk, juice, bread and butter which was fantastic. There are two nice bathrooms, fully stocked with all the amenities one needs on a trip. The bedrooms were very spacious, two with full sized beds and one with a single. An abundant supply of linens awaits you as well and the convenience of a washer and dryer with powders and softeners. In the back, there was a quaint little sitting area where you could go have a glass of wine and relax. Fred has provided a book of notes, recommendations and a few oyster cards you can use. You can just top his off and leave it when you are done instead of spending 5 pounds extra to purchase a card. There is also an ample supply of DVD's and a huge flat screen TV if you have folks that might want to watch. The flat is very close to Paddington station and to bus stops. We were able to navigate our way about town with ease. There is also a great selection of eateries and a market right across from Paddington (a Starbucks too) if you need essentials. You can go in two other different directions from the flat and find even more restaurants so we were never hungry. We absolutely just loved this place!! If I were you, I wouldn't look any further than here. After a long day of sightseeing, it was nice to come home to a place that felt like home and had super comfortable beds. Thanks Fred..we loved our vacation spot and hope to come back again soon!

“Fabulous, great location and great owners to do business with.”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Really located in one of the best areas in London. Easy access to buses, underground and rail. 3 nice size bedrooms, 2 baths and fully equipped kitchen. Hyde park and great restaurants within easy walking distance. Owners very good to work with and they made sure stay was comfortable and enjoyable.

“Perfect for our Christmas Holiday!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The apartment was spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable, and fully supplied. The location was excellent. As it was close to Paddington Station there was easy access to the tube, Heathrow Express, and National Rail for day trips (such as to Windsor or Bath). Fred was easy to deal with and called on the first day of our stay to make sure we were settled. There is also a a large range of Dvd's to watch, which was appreciated. The only downside to this unit is that there is a very steep staircase going from street-level down to the front door that was a challenge with large luggage and a bit slippery when it was raining hard. For people with mobility issues, it might be difficult to manage.

Overall, it was a perfect condo for our family and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

“After multiple stays.....”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

After staying for several weeks for three years in a row in this Bayswater apartment, we can confidently say this is the place to stay in London. Fred and Iris always treat us with consideration and respect, and we always feel as if we are at home. We can't imagine going back to the nice places we used to stay.
